Italeri has re-boxed the older Esci Fokker F27 Friendship with new decals and here Kevin Brant has a look in the box.

Some criticism of the Esci/Italeri kit here. The TL/DR version is that there are some shape issues, but it still looks like an F-27 and it's at least slightly better than the Airfix kit.

I inherited this kit with Ozark Airlines and US Army Golden Knight decals from Siderius. I appreciate this review, now I have an idea of what to expect when I open the box.
